2003 Dodge Durango SLT from North America
Best car I've ever owned
I love this car. This is the second Durango I had. The first was a lease. We didn't do anything to it. No oil changes, no maintence... never had a problem. We purchased a 2003 in May. Absolutely love it.
The changes that have been made have only made it more comfortable. Great for the kids and dogs. Holds lots of stuff. Especially being a soccer mom, it's great for the road.
The only complaint is the gas mileage. It only averages 12 miles to the gallon. But if you are buying a SUV, you know this.
Great is snow --- live in New England and I have driven it in a blizzard.
Basic sound system has been improved.
Big center console.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

All the positive comments, and praise for this vehicle seem a bit over the top. It seems like they were written by someone at Dodge trying to wipe the tarnish off the reputation of a poorly designed SUV.
My wife and I have just had our first child (A boy) and we were very interested in the Durango, being that I drive a 1995 Chevy Silverado, and my wife drives a Mercedes 190e, and neither vehicle is easy to get in and out of with the car seat. The Durango seemed to be a no brainier, but after reading a bunch of reviews of this SUV, I would not put my mother in law in this vehicle.
I guess what they say is true" Chevy, like a rock " yup. I have had very few problems with my truck and it has over 150,000 miles, and gets the crap beat out of it in the desert many times a year, and is still my daily driver.
You may want to read some of the reviews that other people have written about your beloved Durango.
Oh yeah, how is the soccer season in New England? Sounds cold, you have your kids play soccer in the snow?
